it would be really cool if someone could make a fiberglass or carbonfiber or just plain plastic "fast" thats bigger in size [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

I bought my car about the same time. I emailed customer care a few days ago asking where is my fast.

You get an answer? I bought mine in April 30th. Wondering how long I will need to wait, or if I will even get one because of late purchase date. Looks like some get them fast some slow.

late purchase date!? i bought my gti may 24 and i just got my fast today.. june 5 and its got a flaw on it.. hopefully it'll be worth more!
almost all have a flaw on it, I'd say the ones without are worth more
Also, VWoA has confirmed all buyers of the 06 gti will get a fast. 07 is out of luck hehe

This is soo silly because it's a stupid piece of plastic, but d*mnit, if I am due one, I want it...And no I won't be putting mine on eBay. I'll be taking it for a drive instead.
Ok, EVERYONE who bought a GTI gets one. The 600 person quote is garbage.
Call 1-800-DRIVE-VW ... you want to speak with someone in VW Information. Have them pull your information, verify who you are, where you live (having your VIN in advance will speed this up) and see if you are on the mailing list...if not they will add you and get your fast out in the mail. If you don't get it in 3 weeks, call back.
I was told a lot of names have slipped through the cracks...you should received it less than a month after your purchase.
Hope this helps. When I get my fast, I'll post a pic of us having a beer in 115 degree weather, lol.

Here is a picture of the new fast and the paper from VW.
I bought mine on May 27th ...I haven't got one yet....
I bought my GTI on March 30 on my birthday and finally finally finally got my fast today!!! June 20th!!! took almost three months!
the best way to get the fast is to call VWOA and tell them that you havent received your fast...thats what i did and i got mine 2-3 weeks later!
My "fast" arrived last night. Exactly three months from the day I took delivery. The kids and I were all happy and impressed, but the wifey just looked at it and said, "that's what you three were looking for at the front door for the last three months." Some girls just don't understand. But me and the boys are happy now!! Woohoo

I got my GTI on Mar 9. I received my Fast on Jun 22. It was shipped from
"Livonia, MI", according to the UPS tracking info.

Quote, originally posted by digitalhippie » Yep, exactly.... poor injection molding
Yeah, mine has those scratches too. They look like "flashes" from the mold.
I took some pics & wrote up some info:
No, I don't have a life. My wife would agree.
